Well, I know my mom is gonna be sad. She loves that guy. Amy Robach will be moving on up to take his place alongside Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and George Stephanopoulos.
In an unusually frank memo, ABC News president Ben Sherwood revealed that negotiations with Elliot simply broke down. “We worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and his expectations,” Elliot writes. “Josh felt he deserved a different deal and so he chose a new path.”
Added Sherwood of Robach, who shared her breast cancer with viewers last year: “We always knew Amy was special and we have all been especially inspired to watch her battle breast cancer with grace and determination . . .Indeed, she thrilled us with two weeks of memorable dispatches from Sochi anchoring our Olympic coverage … all between chemo treatments.”
“Amy will be a fierce, formidable full-time addition to our GMA team.”
I think it’s pretty awesome that the host spots are predominantly female! Girl power!
